I made another tunic using Butterick 6024, view D. This time it is a yarn-dyed, linen/cotton blend. The warp threads and weft threads are different colors, one navy the other aqua which give it an overall feel off a subdued turquoise.



This time through I realized that the tucks were supposed to be on the outside according to the pattern, so I did that. I like that look, but I think it would've worked better with the thinner lawn fabric I used on the first version.



I bought fabric to make view C, but now I have to give some serious thought as to how I want to do the pintucks before I do.

It is beautifully done!  I love the fabric...shows off the details nicely...I think you can do the pintucks either from the inside or the outside...I like them both...

The pattern seems very versatile...this is a different look than your other one...the fabric really makes the difference...I would wear the heck out of this one because of the color alone!

THANK YOU, friends!

It is beautifully done!  I love the fabric...shows off the details nicely...I think you can do the pintucks either from the inside or the outside...I like them both...

The pattern seems very versatile...this is a different look than your other one...the fabric really makes the difference...I would wear the heck out of this one because of the color alone!

I think I'll get a lot of use out of this, too! The color and the weight which I think will work nicely in the cooler mornings/evenings we have even during the hottest summer days. I would love to try this in a lighter-weight linen, too, if I can find one that ticks all the boxes!

I agree that the pintucks can go either way; the pattern directions have them on the outside is what I meant. Wink

I ordered this pattern, Butterick 6024 ZZ (Lg, xL, xxL). I did view D (the one you used TheMistressT) with the drop hem from A. I used the XL because I wasn't sure how it was going to fit and ended up cutting it down to the Lg size, adding an extra tuck on each side of the front to narrow the neckline and taking up the back seam by 2 inches as well. I think I also narrowed the flair of the sides as well. Then I cut off the drop hem and did a straight hem in back. It's hardly the same pattern now. But I like it. I used a poly/cotton curtain panel someone had given me for the test run and it turned out so well, I'm looking for more cool curtains.  Grin I've used curtain panels before for costumes and such. It's inexpensive and you can sometimes find colors and fabrics not available in the store.

Thank you TheMistressT for the pattern find. It was easy and quick.

Oooo! That's really cute, cmarion3! I do think it runs large, even with the style being flowy. According the bust measurements I should be an XL, but after looking at the finished garment measurements I cut an L. I also brought in the sides a bit and have considered bringing in the back from the bra strap down. I'm also considering buying the Y sizes to try sewing a size medium.

STOP!  BUT, if the "mistakes" are too much for you to handle, I can give you an address of a good home... Grin.

HAHAHAAAA! Well, you know how it is, we all see our own less-than-perfect when no one else notices!   Kiss

MISTAKE: I sewed the bias binding on the wrong side, so the hand sewing is on the outside rather than the inside. SO my lack of skill there is on display for all to see! Luckily, the fabric is textured enough AND people really aren't looking closely enough for it to matter. At least that's what I told myself when I decided not to dig up my seam ripper.    Roll Eyes
